Empath, Passion Projects, and Slaying Your Fears

By |2017-04-19T09:10:28-06:00May 12th, 2017|Empath|

Two years ago today, I released a little passion project called Empath. Nicknamed the “anxiety dragon” book, Empath was less about “what’s popular” and more about pouring my loneliness and ache for home into something else so it would leave me. I’d become overwhelmed with my anxiety, which flares […]

Fear of Fear

There’s nothing to fear but fear itself, but fear is pretty damned scary. This week, I’ve been sharing posts from 2015 about the things that scare me, updating them with progress for 2017. For the last post of the week, it’s time to talk about the fear […]

Fear of Rejection

A few years ago, I wrote some blogs about my biggest fears to celebrate the release of Empath, a book about a girl and her anxiety dragon. Two years later, I’m looking back on the fears I used to have to see how they stack up. Today, my […]

Fear of Being Alone Forever

By |2017-04-19T10:14:36-06:00May 9th, 2017|Empath|

When you have a fear of being alone forever, you make some dumb decisions. A few years ago, I wrote this blog post (plus a few more) when Empath was releasing. I wanted to share all the things I was afraid of, hoping someone might not feel alone. Two years […]

Fear of (no) Money

To celebrate the two year anniversary of my anxiety dragon book, Empath, I’m re-posting the #SlayYourFears series. Basically, I took a leap of faith and wrote about all the things that scared me. I hoped sharing them would help others realize they weren’t alone. Today, I’m talking about my […]

Even though the relationship ended 20+ months ago, I’ve still had a hard time moving on. But I had an interesting thought on the metro a few days ago. I was passing by my ex’s house, which I so happily have to do every morning on the way to work, […]

On First Drafts

By |2017-03-07T15:38:54-06:00October 12th, 2014|Empath, Writing Woes|

Empath is the first “new” first draft that I’ve written in something like fifteen years. The spirit and character names come from a story I wrote when I was 12, but that story was written by a 12-year-old, and h’obviously needed to be scrapped. The characters as they exist today are […]

Taming the Dragon

By |2017-03-06T12:18:51-06:00August 22nd, 2014|Empath|

I received a cordial email this week from the guy I broke up with almost sixteen months ago.
